Which lens? 18-35 D, 24-85/2.8-4 D or 24-85/3.5-4.5 G
I have my N80 and 80-200/2.8 D lens and I am very happy with these.
I want to buy another lens and I don1t know which one choose.
Could you help me, please?
Which one, and why?
24-85/2.8-4 D or

I think we need a bit more information. All three are valid choices and could work well with the 80-200. Obviously, the 18-35mm would leave a "hole" in the focal length coverage, but for many photographers, having a gap between 35mm and 80 mm is no big deal.
The key question is this: Do you need a lens wider than 24mm and how badly do you need it?

Unless you are planning to invest into older Nikon bodies that require that the lens be equipped with an aperture ring I would save the extra coin and go with the AFS24-85G. The 28-105 is also an excellent alternative although it is lacking on the wide end. Also the 24-85 works quite will with a 67-77mm step up ring which will allow you to use the same size filters that the 80-200 uses. The 28-105 has a 62mm front thread and I feel that it would be to big of a jump up to 77 to use a step up ring.
Best of luck
